Living, Learning and Loving

Following a life-threatening illness in 2010, I finally exhaled, opened my eyes, and realized tomorrow was not promised.  Understanding and accepting that I had more yesterdays than tomorrows.  At sixty-seven years old, I decided it was time to start:

  • Living life to its fullest;
  • Learning new things; and
  • Loving me

In doing so, I feel Empowered to

  • Let Go of the unnecessary baggage I carried around for most of my life;
  • Say No to “my wants and desires,” and
  • Say Yes to “my needs.”

During my early transition phase, I was seeking to “find my true self “ and “identify my needs.”  To accomplish this, I had to exit my comfort zone to explore new experiences.

The journey I have chosen to follow is challenging, but it has opened the doors to exciting new places, things and people

  • Yoga Classes
  • Aqua Zumba Classes
  • Spiritual Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Blogging  
  • Social Media
  • Container Flower Gardening

Closing old doors and entering new ones has brought peace, happiness, love, tranquility and serenity into my life.

Today at 70-years-young, I am Living, Learning and Loving everyday.

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!
